The Microsoft Marketing/Communications Global Campaigns and Brand Team collaborated with IDG to share findings from an exclusive survey on the Cloud Intelligence lifecycle for a paid placement housed on You can view the report here after clicking on “See the Data.” The Power BI report is one of many assets including written reports, videos, articles, etc. that explore how decision makers see possibilities for Cloud-based intelligence in the near future.


The Power BI report was developed in conjunction with Enlighten and analyzes the following:

·       The journey to mastering Cloud-based intelligence solutions

·       The most important impact from the Cloud

·       What operational benefits are gained from using Cloud-based intelligence

·       The top 5 ways employees are empowered by the Cloud

·       An overview on Cloud-based intelligence tools available

·       A breakdown on use of IoT solutions

·       Predictions for Business Intelligence within three years


The findings of the repot and all the information can be filtered easily by selecting each region’s flag. As part of this project, Enlighten created interactive visuals including developing custom visuals such as the Enlighten Data Story, Enlighten Waffle Chart and Enlighten World Flags. Shortly you will be able to access the custom visuals Enlighten created in the Office Store, so keep checking in for when they go live!
